We are Passengers
Metalcore / Djent Band from Lancaster UK
Based in Lancaster UK, the Passengers story is one of persistence to find the right pieces from within a small local scene. Finally rounding out the line-up in early 2018, Passengers arrived - and what a welcome they’ve had. Their live debut on September 9th 2018 saw the band share the stage with Martyr Defiled as part of their final farewell show, setting a high precedent from the off.
Drawing influence from a range of Alternative sub-genres, Passengers combine the aggression of contemporary Metalcore, the gut-loosening heaviness of Djent and the ambience and creativity of Post-Rock, all fired atop a hotbed of contemporary electronics/synths, the band have created a sonically infectious sound which fans and listeners have rapidly identified with.
Debut single 'Boundaries' landed on Monday 6th August 2018, to an overwhelming response, which soon led to Metal Hammer magazine and Progress Wrestling putting the band forward to a public vote and the chance to play Wembley Arena in September ‘18. Passengers placed second out of 100+ bands overall, not bad for a band that only finalised the line up 7 months previous. So if this is anything to go by Passengers are set to become an inimitable force.
